c-s-lewis-a-life-inspired A man of reason and vigorous discourse, and a renowned professor of literature and philosophy, C.S. Lewis, always “Jack” to family and friends, never shied from intellectual debate, and through his written works encouraged others to wrestle with the difficult questions of faith.

A master of visual illustration and allegory, Lewis wrote with the intuitive understanding that his readers wrestled with the same questions about the Christian story, about pain, suffering, and notions of Heaven and Hell, as he himself had wrestled. He also understood that others found reason and imagination to be incompatible aspects of an understanding of God and the universe.

Jimmy Hoffa - The Mafia's Greatest Hits - Volume 3

Three of the biggest unsolved mysteries during the past half-a-century are “Who killed Jimmy Hoffa?”; “Why was Jimmy Hoffa killed?” and “Where is Jimmy Hoffa’s body buried?”

The answer to the first question is a no-brainer. The Mafia killed Jimmy Hoffa – plain and simple. But the “why” is much more complicated.

Jimmy Hoffa and his nefarious union activities were joined at the hip with the Mafia since the mid-1930s. Hoffa was their fair-haired boy who delivered for the Mafia in more ways than one. Even before he became President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT), Hoffa used his influence with the IBT to provide several Mafia bosses, including Tampa’s Santo Trafficante, Louisiana’s Carlo Marcello, and Detroit’s Anthony “Tony Jack” Giacalone, hundreds of millions of dollar in unsecured loans from the Teamster Pension Fund. Those loans were used to fund numerous hotels/casinos and other businesses in various parts of North America including Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and in Las Vegas. In truth, half the hotels/casinos in Las Vegas would never have never been built without the financial support of Hoffa’s IBT.

Unfortunately for Hoffa, his brusque and dictatorial ways eventually made him unpalatable for the Mafia bosses, who were used to being treated with the utmost respect.

The Mafioso’s nickname for Hoffa was “Marteduzzo,” which is Sicilian for “The Little Hammer,” because he ruthlessly hammered away at anyone who displeased him, or got in his way on his rise to power.

But as Hoffa’s disrespect for the Mafia bosses increased, the “Little Hammer,” inevitably transformed himself into the lowly nail destined to be banged into oblivion.

Dreadnought The modern battleship era began with the launch of HMS Dreadnought in 1906.

In their day, battleships were the biggest and most complicated things built by human hand and they became symbols of national prestige.

Despite their crippling costs, these mighty ships were built by many of the world’s navies and many remain household names.

The losses of the Hood, Bismarck, Yamato and Arizona still echo through the decades because of their fascinating stories.

The era of the dreadnought lasted little more than 40 years. By then, these majestic warriors of the sea were overshadowed by the dominance of air power.

A few lingered on, but the golden age of the battleship was over.

Richard Hough provides the reader with an informative and exciting tour through the Dreadnoughts history. From the political anxieties that the first Dreadnought inspired to the battles that the ships won and lost.

Dreams of Eli

 

Southern soldier Eli West wakes in a cave and discovers he is held captive by a soldier of the Union. Shot, drugged, and tortured, he descends into the darkness and the beauty of his unconscious, uncovering a time when he was still in love, a time before war, a time before everything fell away.

“The characters of this book are the kind who display such honesty and courage, that they become unforgettable. This is the kind of book that should be on school’s reading lists to show students what living in the south was really like at one dark time in our history.” Robin Landry “singer/songwriter” (TOP 500 REVIEWER) (VINE VOICE)
